Seahawks Swiftly Taunt Lions Following Sunday's Victory in Detroit

Ski Masks and Mind Games

In the wake of the Detroit Lions' Week 1 victory over the Chiefs, safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson made a bold statement by donning a blue ski mask. He intended to convey a powerful message: "It's not the same Detroit." This symbolic gesture, encouraging Lions fans to follow suit, quickly gained momentum, with fans snapping up ski masks from online vendors.

Fans Embrace the Change

Many Lions fans enthusiastically embraced Gardner-Johnson's call to action, adorning themselves with blue ski masks for Week 2's home matchup against the Seahawks. Their collective effort transformed Ford Field into an electric, home-team-supportive atmosphere.

The Unfortunate Turn of Events

However, the spirited effort took an unexpected turn as the Lions fell to the Seahawks in overtime, 37–31. This loss created an opportunity for Seattle to engage in some playful trolling, adding a twist to the narrative.

The Trolling Incident

Safety Jerrick Reed II capitalized on the moment, going live on Instagram after the game while wearing a blue ski mask sourced from the Seahawks' locker room. This post quickly went viral on social media platforms, sparking reactions and discussions.

Mixed Reactions from Seattle

Seattle's Tre Brown, in response to the Lions' ski mask movement, shared his thoughts with MLive reporter Kory Woods. "If that's what they wanna do, whatever their motto is, that's their motto," he commented. "I didn't really understand it, but I was like, 'Hey, whatever you guys wanna do to get the crowd going or follow.' Everybody got something."
